GCSE English Literature revision cards

Added 17 Mar 2020

This series of revision materials are designed to support students to understand key themes and characters within GCSE English Literature set texts. For each text the presentation includes important quotes with a brief analysis.

Use the presentations to prompt class discussion, and if the slides are printed students can add their own notes to form a set of personal revision flashcards.

These materials were developed in collaboration with schools involved in our Read Manchester campaign, led in partnership with Manchester City Council.

  • A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

  • DNA by Dennis Kelly
  • Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
